About the Author

INGRI and EDGAR PARIN D'AULAIRE were author-artists of rare distinction. They met in Munich where both were studying art. Ingri had grown up in Norway; Edgar, the son of a noted Italian portrait painter, was born in Switzerland and had lived in Paris and Florence. Shortly after they married they together began to create text and art for the picture books that established their reputation for unique craftsmanship. During an extended trip to Greece, they studied and sketched the countryside, the people, the architecture, and the artifacts of long ago. These elements appear with unmistakable authenticity, transformed by the d'Aulaires' own artistic concepts.
